When the Wiimote was revealed and finally released, the biggest criticism from trolls was that you have to make such big movements.
Now, the main advantage of Saggle (Sony waggle) over Nintendo´s Wiimote is (and it is Sony´s fans who claim that) that the whole device can detect the controller´s position in 3d space (which the Wiimote is also capable of, though with another approach). So, with the Saggle, the player can now run around the whole room and enjoy hardcore games while being in full movement. AWSOME, eh? I´m sure Gerstmann will be all over Sony´s “superior” motion controls.
On a sidenote, guess what the Wiimote´s biggest advantage over Saggle is? It is independent from another device. You can sit in whatever position you want, even be in another room, and the motion controls will stil work fine. That´s called accessability. No need for being within the radius of a camera. But oh well, now that motion controls are cool, Sony-fans have to hype up the “true 1:1 controls“. As if there was need for those fans to embarrass themselves even more.
PS: Yes, this is a rant, because all those phonies…i can´t stand such attitudes. Dear Sony-fans, be honest and ignore those motion controls…you hated it when it was Wii-only, didn´t you.
